Oh the Drama!

Oh the melodrama of a four year-old when he doesn't get to stay at Grammy's house to swim! Some parents might listen and laugh when their child goes into a angry rant. Me? I listened and laughed AND wrote it down because that's what writer moms do, right?

I DON'T like eating anymore.
I don't like going downstairs.
I don't like looking at you.
I don't like walls in houses anymore. I am going to go upstairs and stay up there forever and FIRE UP THE HOUSE.
I DON'T like soda pop.
I am going to throw my covers down and break apart my bed!
I am going to go outside and KNOCK out the window. Then I am going to go play with BAD people. I am going to stay on a chair and WATCH them!
When it is summertime I am NOT going to go in the water. I am going to SIT on the chair.
I am NOT GOING TO EAT ANYMORE and I am going to die.

Not the bad people! I love my son. Any melodrama around your house lately?


  1. My 2yo told one of her Breyers to "go... live your dream"
    Tangled much?

  2. I also have a four year old and a two year old. They can be equally frustrating and entertaining!

  3. I am seriously laughing so hard at this I am almost crying. Glad to know I'm not the only one with drama queens and drama kings!

  4. My 14-month-old just figured out that weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth makes me laugh, so she's doing it all the time now.

  5. He's quite poetic, you know. He must have your writing genes.
